I never take my cars any where but Fischer's/ Southfield muffler. They are great. All of my family goes there and when asked I always referr friends there. Probably the most Honest mechanic I have ever met which is why I always take my car back there. I needed multiple repairs to my older vehicle I was driving, he told me which were the most important for me to take care of first but also told me basically the car was going to be more expensive to fix than it was worth. He also told me the car would probably last a couple more months with out the repairs. Any other mechanic would have taken me for the money and the car would have died anyways. Instead he saved me the money so I had a downpayment for a new car!
After reading this previous review I was appalled!!! I have been going to Fischer's for years and have dealt with Ryan numerous times. He is the honest mechanic around. He has never did me or anyone I know wrong. We have referred dozens of friends and family to him and they are also extremely pleased. I feel as if there is more to the story of the previous reviewer as Ryan would NEVER recommend repairs that weren't needed. We would never take our vehicles anywhere else but Fischer's.
So i hear good things about Ernie Fischer that he is a hard working and honest guy but unfortunately he has guys named Ryan and Jim working for him(wish i had last names) and that is his downfall because hes the owner and Im not sure if he aided in this activity but this is his shop and he oversees these guys. He will take the fall with them regardless. In short i took my car in and it had major issues. Took it in was called back in a matter of a few days says its driving everywhere and that the problem was fixed over thousand dollars later i stop in and pay and can not drive the car off his lot. I then have a dealership look at this vehicle and was told this vehicle could not have been driven period and theres an add'l 3400.00 worth of electrical problems, water pump problems, power steering etc etc. If i get a call saying i replaced this and that and the car is has been driving all around you can now pick up your car then you get there and pay, then go outside and attempt to fire up the car and its in the same un drivable state as when i brought in. We obviously have a serious problem here. Something is seriously wrong with this mechanic and it seems he was only in it for the money was not concerned if i had running car or not. So go ahead and trust him! Update: Owner and Mechanic refuse to review this matter with me so thats why this review is here
